God's words changed history. Now let them change you.
Are there any words more powerful than God's? Through his words, the world came into creation and all life into being. God spoke to his first people, Adam and Eve, and he spoke to Noah and Abraham, to Moses, to the kings of Judah and Israel, and to the prophets.
And he speaks to you today.
God's words are real, and they

Last week I got A Year with God: Daily Readings & Reflections on God’s Own Words by R.P. Nettelhorst free from Thomas Nelson publishers. When you first look at it this book is quite intimidating. It’s a chunk! But then you realize you’ve only got to read one page a day then go on with your daily activities.

It’s a great book. I really enjoyed my time with it. The author has it broken up into categories like Love and Hate & Hope. So if you’re feeling a little depressed when you wake up in

Having a daily Quiet Time with the Lord is something I strive for - and, unfortunately, something I don't always make time (or have time) for. I know I'm not the only one; it seems that today we all have so much going on and so many other things to read, watch, see, or do, that we have a hard time being still with the Lord.

When I got the chance to read a year-long devotional through Book Sneeze, I jumped at the chance. It seems to have a distinct finish li

I really liked the idea of this book. A devotional that gives you something to think about everyday. Then on top of that having the different categories for the scriptures so that you could read scripture that was relevant to what you were dealing with – Joy, Happiness, Sadness, Fear, Isolation, etc. It was well organized. And I liked that there were stories that accompanied the scriptures. It helped me relate the scripture to something I could understand. A more “concrete” understanding of what ...more

The market is full of daily devotional guides. This book stands apart from the crowd.

Each of the 365 daily readings is based upon an Old Testament passage in which God speaks to his people.

The top third of each page is filled with the day’s Bible passage in a comtemporary translation. The author then reflects upon the passage.

Some of the reflections feel more like blog posts, and they didn’t consistently speak to me. However, on the whole, I found this book useful for personal devotions and expo

I like pretty much anyone else can say they get a little intimidated when reading or even looking at the bible, its size and some times confusing scriptures.

When reviewing A year with God by R.P Nettelhorst I was given a chance to read God's own words and have them explained to me in a way that gave me many life lessons.

The book is a 365-day devotional featuring the actual spoken words of God as presented in the Bible. It touches on subjects ranging from hope & fear, Love & hate, loyalty

A YEAR WITH GOD is a 365 day devotional with daily readings and reflections on God’s words. Each devotional starts with a scripture reading (from various texts, such as The Message, New King James Version, and others) and then a devotional based on what you read.

The devotionals take the scriptures, teaching us a little about what is referred to in

This 365 day reader is suppose to help one find a personal relationship with God, through His Own words as written in the Old Testament. Each day's quotation is followed by a reflection and explanation by the author.
If you are looking to read and explore the Old Testament, than you might enjoy this read. There is no mention of Jesus or Christianity whatsoever. The book has more of a "fire and brimstone" attitude, which is, I guess, much of what is entailed in the Old Testament. I am not an autho

Recommends it for: all
Recommended to Hattie by: Book Sneeze/ Thomas Nelson
This devotional is special to me for more than one reason. I especially loved A YEAR WITH GOD BY R.P. NETTELHORST because the scripture verses are taken from the Old Testament. Often people say the Old Testament has nothing to do with our life now. After all, we no longer need to make a Burnt offering or some other offering. Besides, Christ has come and given His life for us. The Old Testament is just about physical duties people had to fulfill in order to have a relationship with their Creator ...more

This book is a daily Bible devotional based on the words of God from the Old Testament. It is organized into sections such as Hope & Fear, Love & Hate, and Faith & Doubt. Each day lists a section of scripture that includes God’s words to his people followed by a short reflection on this passage from the author.
